Multiple URLs? (Feedback through this Forum?)

Postby alan.richardson » Sun Dec 23, 2012 7:05 am

As there doesn't appear to be the standard "Feedback" link at the bottom of the Lesson Schedules pages, and the Help section points to the wiki and this forum, maybe this is the right place to ask.

Having the ability to add multiple URLs at least to 4th Sunday lessons, when the Stake Presidency specifies two topics to use, would be helpful.

Any plans to do that in the future?

I've seen responses for the ability to have multiple instructors (which would also be helpful) in previous posts, but it doesn't look like that is currently being pursued.

If I had to pick one, I think the URLs would be more immediately helpful. Thanks.

Alan, thanks for the feedback. I added your request to our project tracking database for a possible future release (LUAL-455). However, note that there are currently many services that make one link go to multiple URLs. I did a quick search for this and found various URL shorteners to do this. Try using http://krunchd.com. Here's an example: http://krunchd.com/erfhh4123

Thanks for pointing us in this direction, johnsonth. For those who are trying this, I checked out krunchd as well as some other services. I found I like http://multiurl.com a little better than http://krunchd.com. MultiURL gives you a place to type in a more human-readable description of each link, which is shown to the users. Here's an example: http://www.multiurl.com/ga/LDStech

We'll see what topics our SP selects from April's conference and give this a try. Thanks.

Just an FYI: I've been experiencing various problems with multiurl.com over the last few months. Right now it seems to be very broken. I hope they fix this. It's a free service. I've reported some problems over the last few weeks and nothing has been fixed. It's Monday now, so maybe they'll fix things; I don't know.

I just thought I should point this out for any others who are using multiurl.com. You might want to check on your links to see if they're working at all.

Please add my stake's request to give us the ability to have 2 topics and 2 urls. For the past 2 years, my stake presidency pick 2 conference addresses to discuss during 'teachings for our times' I can only put in 1 topic and 1 url.

Thanks!

Another alternative just occurred to me that may work: You could post the lesson topics on the LDS.org Newsletter tool, then put a link to the newsletter article.

Use the Feedback link at the bottom of many of the pages on LDS.org to request this feature. This is mostly a user-to-user forum. Comments sent to Feedback will be routed to the appropriate team at church headquarters.
